Still, there’s a lot of fun stuff in the Perry+Della+Paul vs. Lieutenant Tragg+Sergeant Holcomb duel to secure key evidence, leverage information, and find opening on each other’s case. The amusing dialogue and snarkfest between these characters are pretty much the highlight of this book. Perry and Della have gotten pretty romantic too, and it’s a pleasant treat for readers who have seen them work well together as a team. I like how unobtrusive this aspect is; appearing in just few lines here and there but still works effectively, as reflected in this lovely passage:

Dorothea Langrishe is my mother. She was a widow when she came over from Ireland, bringing me with her, and founded the business here in Los Angeles. If you've heard of her, then you know how successful she has been. I work for her—or with her, as she'd prefer to say. The result is that I'm quite rich. I want you to find Nico Peterson for me. He's a poor thing but mine own. I'll pay you whatever you ask." Lodge, Guy (24 September 2022).

Somewhere Raymond Chandler is smiling, because this is a beautifully rendered hardboiled novel that echoes Chandler's melancholy at perfect pitch. The story is great, but what amazed me is how John Banville caught the cumulative effect Chandler's prose had on readers. It's hard to quantify, but it's also what separated the Marlowe novels from the general run of noir (which included some damn fine novelists, like David Goodis and Jim Thompson). The sadness runs deep. I loved this book. It was like having an old friend, one you assumed was dead, walk into the room. Kind of like Terry Lennox, hiding behind those drapes. ( Stephen King)
